Introduction to Teaching with Comprehensible Input (T/CI)
My presentation, Reimagining Modern Hebrew Language Instruction, will help you explore these questions:
How does the brain acquire language?
Have you ever observed a caregiver and a toddler having a conversation? What does it look/sound like? Does a toddler speak in full sentences?
What role do affect and emotion play in language acquisition?
Is your teaching approach aligned with how the brain acquires language?
Follow up: What are some differences between these strategies for teaching and your current practice? Does your Hebrew classroom practice reflect your understanding of Second Language Acquisition?
